Fernanda Goulart

Belo Horizonte (MG)

Urbano Ornamento

[Urban Ornament], 2014


In her academic research recently published, Goulart built an inventory of wrought iron railings in Belo Horizonte. The basis of this work was pictures of over 4 thousand façades in the old part of the city and resulted in a catalog of ornaments with about 3 thousand vectorial drawings. By covering two fronts, the project documents part of the nearly-extinct urban visual culture and makes this material available for appropriation in new and diverse contexts, thus propagating its existence.
